Leave it to the Brooklyn Bridge to once again provide the perfect backdrop. It was here on an early spring day in April where we shot Andrew and Peipei’s engagement session. The fog was beautiful as it layered everything with a silver hue. When it lifted, however, we had the sun resting on our shoulders. It was like two days in one.
From Andy: “I had gotten Peipei to come with me to the Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo just before sunset on April 8th by telling her we had an early meal. Once we got there we walked along the river from the River Cafe past the Carousel to the beach area where the waves break. Battling an extreme case of nerves I waited for a moment when we had a little privacy, positioned us so she could see the sun setting behind the lower Manhattan skyline; gave her my little speech and dropped down on one knee and proposed. Fortunately for me she didn’t hesitate too much! We then walked around the streets of Dumbo sharing in the euphoria until we had a beautiful dinner at the Vinegar Hill House../ and the rest is history.”
The pictures are going to be put in an archival album and shall also serve as their official announcement on social media and in a printed card.
